There are so many ways for something to be amazing, so I won't tell you the book I just finished was amazing. I will tell you the characters are unique and memorable. They remind me of people who walked through my childhood with me. I will tell you the story is funny, heart-wrenching, and beautiful. I will also tell you that reading it opened a floodgate of teenage memories.
The writing style is unique, and fresh, and every word counts. I want so badly to recommend it to people because:
1. The author deserves the credit
2. Someone else may become as smitten by this book as I was, and I don't want anyone to miss that.
3. In many ways it's a great writing model for contemporary fiction.
But....I am very particular about the books I recommend, and this one has some questionable content (you know--sex, violence, or cussing) -- just like life.
So, with that warning, I give you The Sky Is Everywhere.
And thank you, Jandy Nelson, for an unforgettable summer read!
Have you read anything amazing this summer? I figure I can still fit in a few more books, so what do you have for me?
